John Travolta’s new film “Gotti” opened over the weekend to a rare 0 per cent rating among critics on Rotten Tomatoes, but its audience score paints a suspiciously different picture.

Screen Junkies critic Dan Murrell alerted followers on Twitter to the strange goings on with the crime drama’s 77 per cent user review score on the review aggregation site.

As Murrell notes in his thread, the number of user ratings for Gotti is suspiciously high, almost matching that of “Incredibles 2”, despite the animated film opening on thousands more screens and doing more than 100 times better at the box office.

The suspicious pattern is evident in comparison with other films like “Ocean’s 8” and “Beirut” as well.

When the official Twitter feed for “Gotti” posted that audiences should trust the high Rotten Tomatoes user rating over its critics rating, Murrell outright accused the “some party involved” with the film of artificially manipulating its score.

Inspired by Murrell, a user on Reddit shared their own investigation into what may be going on and found even more reason to be suspicious.

“I went to take a look at the written reviews on [Rotten Tomatoes] and of the first 58 reviewers with an available profile 45 had created their account on June 2018,” the user wrote. “Out of these 45, 32 have only reviewed ‘Gotti’, 10 reviewed ‘Gotti’ and another movie (7 times it was ‘American Animals’ for some reason) and 3 had more than 3 reviews.”

The redditor continued: “Of the remaining 13 accounts 8 looked normal and 5 had created their account in December… so those were probably legit.”

Others in the comments noted a suspicious connection to the movie ticket subscription service MoviePass, which partnered with distributor The Orchard recently, acquiring both “American Animals” and “Gotti”.

This is in addition to a report from Deadline that MoviePass customers accounted for 40 per cent of the $1.6 million opening weekend gross for “Gotti”. The service also accounted for between 25 and 35 per cent of the opening gross of “American Animals”.
